Buckhorn Fine Art Festival 2009

Deadline: January 31, 2009 (RECEIVE)

Buckhorn Fine Art Festival 2009

Buckhorn, Ontario
August 13 - 16, 2009

The Buckhorn Fine Art Festival is a juried show and has operated using this professional process since its beginning in 1978. Annually we welcome new submissions from 'fine art' artists and plan to create a revitalized experience for all participants.

The definition of fine art by which submissions for the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival are measured is as follows;

The selective re-creation of reality, to express human perspectives and values, in a highly skilled fashion incorporating creative innovation through the medium of painting, drawing and sculpture.

In keeping with the 'spirit' of the qualities of great skill, innovation, etc., the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival also recognizes these qualities in other creative mediums such as pottery, jewelery, photography, wood turning, etc.
